COLLEGE STATION - The Texas A&M women’s basketball team tied its highest-ever preseason national ranking in school history with a spot at No. 11 in the preseason Associated Press Top 25 Poll released on Saturday.

The Aggies were also picked a school-best No. 11 in the preseason USA TODAY/ESPN Coaches Top 25 Poll released on Oct. 31. A&M made its third all-time appearance in the preseason AP Poll next to being selected No. 14 prior to the start of the 2006-07 season and No. 23 prior to the 1994-95 season.
